I-130 from USC abroad - change address?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I remember reading a thread that may have already answered this, but can't seem to find it now so sorry if this has already been answered!

I'm living abroad with my spouse and sent our petitions to my family in the US who assembled the petitions and mailed them to USCIS. We've just received electronic NOA1 and I signed up for an account, added our cases, and email alerts.

What I'm wondering is will RFEs show up on the case status online? Or by email alert?

We have no mail delivery here in Ethiopia aside from P.O. boxes. I didn't bother to get a P.O. box address because we live far outside the capital and any mail we've received from my family (to my husband's work p.o. box address) has taken around 4 weeks.

Will we have a problem if we have no way to receive snailmail from USCIS? Should I get a p.o. box here anyway and do a change of address - would this delay our case processing in any way?

I was hoping to be expedited since I'm living abroad.
